Usually on Wednesdays it is a Refrigerator Boogie. That is when one cleans it out and takes inventory of what food needs to be replaced. I have been so busy and primarily concentrating on keeping my sink shined, declutter 15 each day, get dressed to shoes as the emphasis, and making the bed daily. So my fridge was feeling left out. This is my first brand new fridge and I have loved it from day one. The fridge I had before was given to me and you could watch mold grow on strawberries because of the high humidity. I have always been very good at keeping my new fridge clean and tidy. I guess it isn’t really new. I bought it in 2002. It is almost 10 years old! Still new to me.
Today I was in some kind of funk. On Thursday’s Flylady and Friends http://blogtalkradio.com show I was a surprised guest. It was great fun and enjoyed talking to Marla Cilley The Flylady. It was a show about awareness and how we first must become aware in order to begin our journey. We shared many things together and I enjoyed the conversation sometimes forgetting I was on the internet broadcasting!
So, here it is Friday. I am sure I was tired from all of the excitement. I was really flying high yesterday. I took my time getting ready this morning and gave myself a pampering session. The eyebrows needed to be plucked and a pedicure was very much in demand. I took my daily photo post with my sign saying Day 46. Now what? Winter came back to us and no sun on top of it. Was having a difficult time getting motivated for anything extra. I had all of my routines done. I was thinking of going to town to get groceries but the roads were a little slippery and it wasn’t worth it.
I fell asleep in my recliner. When I woke up, it was 7. Was it 7am or pm? I must have zonked out hard. What made it so confusing was snow on the ground and daylight. Finally I got my bearings and looked at a digital clock that had am and pm just to make sure. It was pm
My grocery shopping trip will be tomorrow along with the rest of the Saturday crowd. It is not my preference but sometimes necessary. I guess you could say it is the frog I will be eating. So I asked myself how can I make it easier on me? Maybe I had better eat the frog that’s in the fridge first! In other words, a refrigerator boogie. If there was ever a time to eat that frog, it was now. So, I started out with the 27 fling boogie. It actually was 15 minutes but if I thought I had to stand and clean for fifteen minutes, that frog could rot for all I care!
The 27 fling boogie turned into 27+7. Lily is getting pretty comfortable with my routines now. She doesn’t think we are going to eat every time I am in the kitchen. If I am ready to take the garbage out, she is there! This is where I write this blog. Don’t worry though. She keeps a close eye on me from the couch or her doggy bed. Nothing really gets past her.
Once I got the flinging done I was going to wipe it down quick. Well, that didn’t happen. The wiping down part did. Not the quickly. You see, my fridge was dirtier than I thought. Did you know a fridge could actually get dusty inside? I didn’t think so. Maybe others call it dirt. It looked like dust to me! Am I going to have to dust inside my fridge too? Am I that “Flywashed”? Do you think I should ask Flylady? Not! I’ll just take this purple rag and let it do its magic. It worked! Huh!
Now that it is all done, sparkling and clean, I can bring my new groceries home and they will be welcomed by my fridge. No nasty frog in my refrigerator anymore!
